Identical Twin Humor

As a mother of (identical) twins, I've had to learn to tolerate the sometimes inexplicable humor my girls share.

Take yesterday, for example. We're driving down the highway, and one twin (who is wearing the same hair accessory and (almost) identical glasses as the other, which is NOT a common occurrence) says to her sister,
"You're so DUMB. Look at your dumb BOW, and your dumb GLASSES, and your dumb FACE!"

Immediately her sister ripostes, "No, YOU'RE so dumb! Look at YOUR dumb bow, and YOUR dumb glasses, and YOUR dumb face!"

Cue uproarious laughter from the girls, but not from me. I'm too busy trying not to crash the car as I simultaneously facepalm and roll my eyes.

Oh and the most inexplicable thing about all this is that my twins turn 21 this year...and they're STILL making jokes like this (and finding them funny!)

They DO live in their own little world... :-)

That IS hard to do! Especially while driving. ;-)

I bet they are so much fun to be around.

Thank heaven my (35 year old) boys were NOT identical.

Wow. Having met your lovely girls, I'm ASTONISHED that I never realized they are identical! Sure, they look very alike, but are so distinctive. Nifty. It's got to be great to have that unique frame of reference with one other soul in life- like your other self. I have to say, though, that some people are so wonderful that they had to be two people. :)
